Thank you for sharing this compelling and meaningful story, Vicky. Love, peace, and best wishes,
Believe In Magic (Short Story) - 7/25/2012 5:02:11 AM
A beautiful, moving and magical memory to hold in your heart for eternity. It is within these experiences that bring us that much closer to our true Self and humanity. Truly Divine Beings are everywhere, angels, humans, and God's light permeates in times of great need and when we are truly ready to open ourselves to such experiences, the magic or divine energy enters in. Tears well up in my eyes as you shared your journey with me. :) It is when we become humble that we become closer to God's grace.

I appreciate the lovely and meaningful point of view that you have shared through your verses here, Vicky. Thank you! Love and peace to you,
A Stranger's Hand (Poetry) - 7/18/2014 9:02:03 AM
stunning...you give words that breathe life into the 'unable to express' emotions of all of us that must say good bye to loved ones that have become lone strangers...each to the other
Spirit in Art (Poetry) - 7/18/2014 8:52:55 AM
bravo! what a magnificent piece...such an artistic weaving of words and near ethereal descriptive lines....can't wait to read more of your work....pmedlin
Spirit in Art (Poetry) - 7/18/2014 8:09:51 AM
Your love of art and artistry as well portrayed in your poem. While I enjoy all forms of artistic endeavor, I tend towards the lower, more natural side, rather than the esoteric, highly literate side of artistry.
Spirit in Art (Poetry) - 7/18/2014 5:49:11 AM
I really liked your delving into the Spirit in Art, Vicky. I, for one, became mesmerized by your very descriptive words, which took me inside this, your spirit in art (poetry).
Spirit in Art (Poetry) - 7/17/2014 4:59:36 PM
Very nice poem!
Spirit in Art (Poetry) - 7/17/2014 3:53:25 PM
Artistic poetry here. Like a beautiful tapestry, this poem was knitted very well. BRAVO!

Beautiful cloud formation that you captured...perhaps we all should try that, Vicky.
Tea, Toast, T'ai Chi (Poetry) - 3/12/2014 7:31:03 AM
i always found gnostic breakfasts feasts quite interesting .... well written ...
Tea, Toast, T'ai Chi (Poetry) - 3/12/2014 7:28:11 AM
A morning to remember. If only everyone had mornings like this. This morning I savored a slice of toast with my coffee as well.

A wonderful inspirational tribute! Well done!
Prayer at the Center (Poetry) - 4/5/2013 11:49:22 AM
I was there when you read this poem. So moving I was in tears. And, so were you. Life with a poet is a miracle.
Prayer at the Center (Poetry) - 4/5/2013 3:51:20 AM
resounding faith worded here
Triduum (Poetry) - 4/2/2013 7:23:59 AM

Beloved (Poetry) - 2/18/2013 6:27:41 AM
I like your interpretations of movement..." Beloved."
Beloved (Poetry) - 2/15/2013 7:13:33 AM
Your image captures me more than your poem. Yesterday a 10 ton meteor struck a remote town in Russia. It looked a lot like your image. Are you clairvoyant?
A Stranger's Hand (Poetry) - 1/25/2013 7:34:40 AM
So touching and personal that I could feel your sorrow at her loss. The redemption of a stranger was an added bonus, making the poem even more poignant.
A Stranger's Hand (Poetry) - 1/25/2013 4:15:27 AM
very well done thank you for sharing
Out of the Shadows (Poetry) - 1/12/2013 2:49:00 PM

The seashore reflects our souls..especially those besides us. Vicky, Beautiful! Deborah

excellent photo and poem.~ Morgan
Seashell (Poetry) - 11/15/2012 2:40:03 PM
The essence of “us” can be found at the seashore.
Seashell (Poetry) - 11/15/2012 11:01:47 AM
The setting, shore holding onto the shell, for it carries living memories and secrets that only two can share...your words set the motion, just as the sea whispers...names.
Quite beautiful, Vicky!
Seashell (Poetry) - 11/15/2012 9:38:10 AM
As wonderfully convoluting as the seashell you praise, Vicky! I love 'polished by piquant breath and brine'. Sad and sweet and lovely, and I seem to ache with the liminal evanescence of the ending..

Seashell (Poetry) - 11/14/2012 3:51:51 PM
a very well written vision of the seas treasure
Wayfarers (Poetry) - 11/13/2012 7:47:41 AM
All the seashore has to offer. So much more when experienced with a friend.

Out of the Shadows (Poetry) - 10/2/2012 4:41:14 AM
it's amazing isn't it vicky...when we realize He never leaves us...simply waits for us to step forward in faith into the miracle of His 'healing constant love'
i love the beautiful weaving of your words...so glad i stumbled on your work.
i have a little arab mare that i named 'shiloh'...peaceful one...simple because she was anything BUT that during our first few years :)
Out of the Shadows (Poetry) - 10/1/2012 4:47:26 PM
Cats can be mysterious at times. They want to be loved as much as you wish to be loved...Beautiful,Vicky.
Final Honors (Poetry) - 9/22/2012 2:11:01 PM
Powerful, Vicky, all I can say as the 21 guns thuds its way home in lines of remembrance. Bless the Fallen and their families, and you, for honoring them.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
On The Wind (Poetry) - 9/20/2012 10:23:54 AM
Beautiful rememberance,Vicky..." Breathe in,breathe in their lives. Their souls surround us. They are now us - on the wind. "
On The Wind (Poetry) - 9/16/2012 11:35:58 AM
Very beautiful. The noise, and then nothing, just them as they pass in the wind.
On The Wind (Poetry) - 9/13/2012 11:00:24 AM
You have reminded me of that Bob Dylan song, “ Blowing in the Wind.” Let's hope the winds of the future will be more peaceful.
On The Wind (Poetry) - 9/11/2012 7:03:35 AM
Oh, my word, Vicky. This surrounds me and leaves me in tears -- they could have been us. Beautifully, heartbreakingly penned and illustrated. Thank you.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 9/3/2012 8:10:34 PM
Loved the poem, love the compassion and I love cats!
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 9/3/2012 4:44:29 AM
A poem that shows love for cats, so commonly shared. We don't have one, since my husband isn't one for pets, but there's a cute black and white cat that visits our scrap "feast."
This is a wonderful picture! The cats are gorgeous and the setting and focus of the picture is great--I'm sure my semi-pro photographer daughter would heartily approve.
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 8/21/2012 1:37:00 PM
You are doing a wonderful thing. There is a feral feline lady I feed each day. I've been doing it for two months. Yesterday she let me pet her for the first time! Hopefully soon I can make sure she gets spayed and a good home. Thank you for what you do.
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 8/15/2012 3:07:35 AM
both works of 'art'...are good. thanks for share....asa
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 7:41:01 PM
like George, i bless your good heart, Vicky;
the pic is perfect!
Feline Friends (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 10:01:09 AM
I'm glad you're out there–doing this. I don't think cats have ever really been domesticated. A recent study mounting cameras on cats showed that they roam widely while out of the house and killed an average of two other animals a week.
Life Print (Poetry) - 8/7/2012 4:52:32 AM
a life that influences a life time. certainly...a huge blessing. thanks for share
Sedona Silence (Poetry) - 8/2/2012 7:24:43 AM
I have passed through several times, and find Sedona Arizona the most beautiful and restful place where artists flock to enjoy the inspiration of the air and light upon the sculptured red rocks. Your poem speaks of the time it took to carve such beauty with wind and rain. Brought back memories.
I hope to return there some day.
Sedona Silence (Poetry) - 8/1/2012 4:59:13 PM
this is a place I have heard of before and i think I need to visit-well done
Mary Oliver Reads (Poetry) - 7/30/2012 6:58:33 PM
A fine and respectful tribute well shared via your verses, Vicky. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Abraham's Sons (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 11:52:49 AM
The anguish is ancient and deep. There are those on all sides who fan fires of war for their own purposes. I believe that the Internet and the education and bring will an end to war in due time.
Abraham's Sons (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 9:38:49 AM
Only if they could know that they are really one man's sons; then, maybe there could be peace. Well done, Vicky.
Abraham's Sons (Poetry) - 7/25/2012 5:06:04 PM
This is a plea for peace; your theme is a universal and sadly a timeless one. Will we ever see peace in this world? Thank you, Vicky. Love, peace, and blessings,
Rapture (Poetry) - 7/25/2012 4:40:12 AM
Your words are awakening. Beautiful!
Red Tailed Hawk (Poetry) - 7/23/2012 5:15:00 PM
Your kinship with nature shines through your verses here, Vicky. Red-tailed hawks are quite common around here and I never tire of watching them ride the thermals... Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Rapture (Poetry) - 7/23/2012 1:11:49 PM
This is a thought-eliciting write, Vicky. Thank you for sharing your philosophical point of view. Love and peace,

Shaman (Poetry) - 7/20/2012 1:18:01 PM
Thank you for sharing the blessings, Vicky. Love, peace, and best wishes,
Shaman (Poetry) - 7/20/2012 11:00:51 AM
Touching in its heartfelt humility. The imagery was especially pleasing, (IMO) and had a discernible spiritual fragrance. As I interpret it: an ardent heartcry to the Lakota Sioux 'Grandfather', or the Most High God of the Bible, for forgiveness, relationship, and perhaps intervention on a quickly devolving planet. "Aho" I can only interpret (but I may be wrong) as meaning 'in agreement'. Enjoyed!
Peace to you ... rlc
Shaman (Poetry) - 7/18/2012 3:22:03 PM
How lovely! It is a blessing to have Gil in your life. And, a blessing for him to have you in his.
Rapture (Poetry) - 7/14/2012 8:59:10 AM
Reminds us to get a firm grip on our reality before we run out of time. Thoughtful and well-written.
Rapture (Poetry) - 7/14/2012 6:19:04 AM
what is reality but knowing our own boundaries?
Rapture (Poetry) - 7/13/2012 10:39:42 AM
Love your words...
Red Tailed Hawk (Poetry) - 7/5/2012 12:10:42 PM
A lovely poem about the oneness of our vision of the splendor of flight demonstrated by birds of prey like the red tail hawk. I just love to watch hawks fly.
Red Tailed Hawk (Poetry) - 7/4/2012 12:37:39 PM
The Red Tail is a magnificent hunter, as is your write about him.
Mary Oliver Reads (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 1:58:49 PM
Lovely scene as you present it---It mades me want to know who Mary is. I must Google and see what I can find.

You aim your sights at the core of the reason for Memorial Day. And you hit a bull's-eye.
Final Honors (Poetry) - 5/28/2012 12:22:20 AM
Powerful poem, Connie; thanks for remembering our brave heroes! SALUTE!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(
Final Honors (Poetry) - 5/27/2012 2:42:12 AM
You captured the intensity of battle well and shared with us what men (and women) in combat have to face all too often.
Farm House (Poetry) - 4/26/2012 1:51:57 AM
Lovely poem, Vicky
Farm House (Poetry) - 4/21/2012 9:30:00 AM
Memories of my childhood flooded back. It's too bad so many kids these days don't get a chance to run free on the family farm. And a two hundred year old culture is being lost one farm at a time.
Farm House (Poetry) - 4/20/2012 6:49:03 PM
Your poetry puts the dustbowl of Eastern Washington wheat fields back in my nose. Those were good days and even the "dusty screened windows," makes me remember that smell of the meshed screen catching all that dry airborn earth powder. "...tender grown and hidden gifts:" and "remembered grace." This is good stuff. I wish everyone could know this. Thank you. ~~ Diana
Farm House (Poetry) - 4/20/2012 9:38:42 AM
Enjoyed your poem, I've never lived on a farm, but I always wanted too. Excellent write!
